Trump Pushes U.N.: ‘We Are Not Seeing the Results’

The tension has gone both ways. Last month, the United Nations human rights chief chastised Mr. Trump for his repeated attacks on the news media, saying that they could incite violence and set a bad example for other countries.At a news conference at the French mission on Monday, Jean-Yves Le Drian, France’s foreign minister, described the context in which Mr. Trump arrived. “There’s a worrying degradation of the international environment,” he said. “Never since the end of the Cold War have dissensions, tensions, the level of conflict been so high in a world that is more interdependent than ever.”“And what is worse is despite globalization, cooperation has become less easy with increasing questioning of the roles of the multilateral game and with a temptation of withdrawal out of fear or selfishness,” Mr. Le Drian added.No mention was made during Mr. Trump’s opening appearance on Monday of the global crises that the United Nations has rung alarm bells about: attacks on the Rohingya minority in Myanmar, climate change, the nuclear threat in North Korea, and a record 65 million people displaced from their homes.PhotoA “family photo” during the United Nations meeting on Monday.Credit Doug Mills/The New York TimesMr. Trump’s main message to the visiting heads of state and government will come on Tuesday when he addresses the opening session of the United Nations General Assembly. Aides have said he will stress “sovereignty and accountability,” a contrast to his predecessors who used the annual occasion to rally joint action on issues like terrorism, weapons proliferation and climate change.Mr. […]

Irma Shifting Forecasts: It’s All a Matter of Probability

Hurricane Irma has confounded even the experts. Brian McNoldy, a researcher at the University of Miami and respected blogger on tropical storms and hurricanes, decided on Thursday to evacuate from South Florida with friends and his two dogs and drive to the Tampa area.Continue reading the main storyHe said he was willing to take on the risk of a powerful storm, but the prospect of what at the time appeared to be the eyewall of a Category 4 or even 5 slamming into Miami with obliterating force gave him “a sickening vibe,” he said. He recalled thinking, “We don’t want to be here.”When Irma’s track shifted west, they drove back to face what he expected to be a rough but survivable blow.Even considering his own actions, he says officials in cities on the west coast of Florida could have been more attentive.“From my perspective, the east coast and the west coast have been equally in play for the last week,” he said […]

How Hurricane Irma Became So Huge and Destructive

PhotoHurricane Irma as it moved toward Florida on Friday.Credit National Oceanic and Atmospheric AdministrationWASHINGTON — As Hurricane Irma barrels dangerously toward Florida, scientists say that a perfect mix of meteorological conditions has conspired over the past week to make the storm unusually large and powerful.“You need just the right ingredients for a hurricane of this magnitude to last for so long,” said Phil Klotzbach, an atmospheric scientist at Colorado State University. “And Irma has had them all.”Weather forecasters had already expected this summer to be an active hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean because of warmer-than-average ocean surface temperatures, which provide fuel for hurricanes, as well as weaker-than-average wind shear, which can help to dissipate storms.But even in that context, Irma was special.Irma initially developed near Cape Verde off Africa’s coast on August 30, and a ridge of high pressure kept the storm from wandering off harmlessly into the cooler northern ocean. Instead, it was pushed inexorably westward, with plenty of time to intensify over the warm Atlantic waters.On its journey west, Irma underwent at least six cycles called “eyewall replacement,” when the eye of the hurricane naturally contracts. While storms can weaken during this process, they also can quickly intensify and expand in size once the cycle is complete. And Irma did not weaken — it just grew and grew.GraphicA ‘500-Year Flood’ Could Happen Again Sooner Than You Think. […]
